Personal Information.  RITE may collect information about Users, including, but not limited to, names, addresses, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, and information about Users’ interests in, and uses of the Programs and any other products and services offered by RITE (“Personal Information”). RITE may also obtain Personal Information from you when you place an order for a Program from the Website or from a Third Party Website. RITE takes reasonable efforts to ensure that your privacy is protected and that the Personal Information you provide to us is secure.  RITE’s purposes for collecting Personal Information from you are limited to: (1) to provide you with access to the Programs for which you have purchased memberships (Licenses); (2) to prevent unauthorized access and use of the Programs; (3) to ensure you have the best possible service; (4) to improve RITE’s products and services; (5) to send you e-mails updating you on new products and promotions (which you may opt out of at any time by following the “unsubscribe” link in any email you receive from RITE); and (6) to comply with RITE’s internal record keeping practices.

RITE does not sell, distribute, or use your Personal Information for any marketing purposes, except that RITE may use your Personal Information internally to better understand the demographics, interests, and behaviors of RITE’s audience. Use of RITE’s Website is subject to all applicable state and federal laws.

It is RITE’s usual practice not to share Users’ Personal Information with any third party.  However, when circumstances arise for the need to share information gathered from the Website, RITE may share such information as is:  (1) authorized by law; (2) clearly stated on the Website, and the User indicates consent by providing the information (such as Success Stories submissions); (3) authorized by the User through the User’s consent, whether implicit or explicit.

b. Non-Personal information and cookies.  While you are using the Website or accessing any of the Programs through Third Party Websites, non-personally-identifiable information about you may be collected, such as the URL you just came from, the next URL you go to, what browser you are using (e.g. Netscape, Internet Explorer, Mozilla), the domain name of the Internet Service Provider (e.g. AOL, Earthlink), and your IP address.  RITE uses cookies, i.e., small pieces of data stored by the web browser on a User’s computer used to retain information about preferences and pages a User has visited. The purposes of the cookies are for RITE to keep track of your most recent visit to the Website, to provide you with an online shopping cart, and to track and customize advertising for you.  The User can refuse to accept cookies, disable cookies, and remove cookies from the User’s hard drive.

4. Third Parties and Disclaimers. The Website is linked to other websites.  When a User leaves the Website and visits another site, the User is subject to the privacy policy of that new site.  RITE is not responsible for the practices and policies of any other website, and RITE disclaims any and all liability whatsoever, inclusive of all of the disclaimers and limitations set forth Section V of the Terms and Conditions, arising from RITE’s links to other websites or arising from any third party website.  Because RITE is not responsible for the availability of other websites (including but not limited to the Third Party Websites), the User should direct any concerns regarding such other websites to the webmasters of those websites.

9. Severability and Enforcement.  Wherever possible, each provision of the Privacy Policy shall be interpreted so that it will be legally effective and enforceable.  If the applicable law prohibits or invalidates any provision of the Privacy Policy, such provision shall be rendered ineffective and severable from the remainder of the Privacy Policy without affecting or impairing such remainder’s validity.
